Defiant Rep. Wilson: I won't apologize again
President Barack Obama dismisses 'you lie' outburst by Joe Wilson
Palin: Don't 'demonize' our troops, Obama
President Obama's speech, a congressman heckled him. This guy from South
Carolina begins to heckle the guy, and I thought, OK, so now Gov. Mark Sanford
is the second most embarrassing politician from South Carolina" --David
"President Obama made his big healthcare address to a joint session of Congress last night. It went pretty well, except for one weird part in the middle of it, when a congressman from South Carolina suddenly yelled out, 'You lie!' It's amazing this guy was able to sit through seven years of President Bush telling him everything in Iraq is fine without a peep, but last night, he yells out, 'You lie!'" --Jimmy Kimmel
Shoe Thrower To Be Freed
Muntazer al-Zaidi, the Iraqi reporter who became famous worldwide when he threw his shoes at then U.S. President George W. Bush, is thought likely to get a hero's welcome if he is freed from jail, as expected, on Monday.
"Republican Congressman Joe Wilson apologized for calling President Obama a liar
during his speech on health care. Obama accepted Wilson's apology, and then
invited him to appear before a death panel." –Conan O'Brien

10. "Shouldn't have gone tailgating before the speech"
9. "Ashton Kutcher put me up to it"
8. "Was trying to impress that hellcat Nancy Pelosi"
7. "Thought I was in the audience at Maury"
6. "Uh...Swine Flu?"
5. "I'm an idiot?"
4. "Yeah, I accused a politician of lying. What was I thinking?"
3. "I thought it was a roast"

The state that fired the
first shot of the Civil War has now given us this: Senator Jim DeMint exhorted
conservatives to “break” the president by upending his health care plan. Rusty
DePass, a G.O.P. activist, said that a gorilla that escaped from a zoo was “just
one of Michelle’s ancestors.” Lovelorn Mark Sanford tried to refuse the
president’s stimulus money. And now Joe Wilson.
“A good many people in South Carolina really reject the notion that we’re part of the union,” said Don Fowler, the former Democratic Party chief who teaches politics at the University of South Carolina. He observed that when slavery was destroyed by outside forces and segregation was undone by civil rights leaders and Congress, it bred xenophobia.
Obama giving a lot of very important speeches. He gave a speech about healthcare
tonight, and yesterday he gave a pep talk to students. He told them that in
order to succeed they need to work hard and study hard. Then today, former
President George W. Bush presented the rebuttal." --Conan O'Brien

Subject: Your website
I noticed you didn't publish a new issue after your birthday. Did you party too hearty? Just kidding. Any good political discussions in Costa Rica?
I hope you soon can start treatment for your Hodgkin's disease. My sister is a ten year survivor.
Love you and your site,
Thanks for writing Nathan, and I wish your sister continued good health.
I wish I partied too hearty but my internet access (via my phone) kept cutting out and it finally subsided late Sunday. Also, no electricity. Ah, the life in a remote part of Costa Rica.
I haven't started treatment yet, I am hoping for 25-30K to drop out of the sky so I can begin. lol
Since I arrived in Costa I have had only two political discussions, both with rich, white, racist, retired Floridians. One man I met in San Jose while I was waiting for my surgery, said, "Obama's got to prove to me he's not a n*gg*r." I promptly told him how I felt and excused myself.
The other political discussion was with a couple from Pompano. They both lectured me on the facts that Obama is a racist, a Chicago political thug and wants to socialize America, AND that Valerie Plame was not a covert CIA agent AND that affordable health care is available to all Americans if they want it.
After listening to their diatribe, I unslacked my jaw and said, "I'm stunned that you think Obama is a racist. You sound like Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh. And Valerie Plame was a covert CIA agent when she was outted according to the Federal prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald who said in court, 'Valerie Plame's cover was blown.' It's your choice to accept facts or not." They both wildly responded saying that everyone in DC knew Valerie Plame was CIA, Obama does hate white people because of the church he attended in Chicago, and there aren't 45 million people w/o health insurance, blah,blah,blah...
Republicans have perfected the art of "if you repeat a lie enough times people will believe it."
